Philosophy becomes child's play in this new series centred around Hugo and his friends from the Cbeebies series, What's The Big Idea?

In Why Am I Jealous?, Hugo feels left out when his friends start playing with other children. He feels angry and sad, could he be feeling jealous? What is jealousy? This book explores the effect of jealousy, the situations in which it arises and encourages children to think about what jealousy is and ways to stop feeling left out. Children will recognise the characters from the Cbeebies series, What's The Big Idea?.

The book is part of a series which introduces young children aged 4+ to philosophy by exploring different emotions and ideas through a variety of amusing and familiar situations. Each book aims to promote thinking skills in its readers developing their questioning of the world around them and encouraging them to make up their own minds. The books include discussion notes for parents or educators.
